Micho’s New Chapter: Libya’s Latest Acquisition

From Uganda to Libya: Sredojević's Coaching Journey Continues

In a significant development for African football, Milutin Sredojević, popularly known as ‘Micho’, is set to take the reins as the head coach of the Libya national football team. This move comes shortly after Micho’s departure from his role with the Ugandan national team.

Micho’s association with Uganda ended on a somber note as the team failed to qualify for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations. Despite this setback, Micho’s credentials remain strong, given his previous success with Uganda, where he led them to the 2017 AFCON finals, marking their first appearance in the tournament in nearly four decades.

The Serbian coach’s appointment to the Libyan team has been a topic of discussion in football circles, with several sources confirming the news. Micho is expected to replace the interim boss, Salem Al-Jalali. The Libyan Football Federation (LFF) is anticipated to make an official announcement soon, solidifying Micho’s two-year contract with the team.

Micho’s immediate challenge will be the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers. Libya is set to face formidable opponents in their Group D campaign, including matches against eSwatini and Cameroon in November. The team will play an away game against eSwatini on the 13th of November
